I feel that the above information is important because the environment that a child with a cochlear implant will be educated in needs to be one that he or she will have great success in. If a child is in an environment that is not prepared to have a child with a cochlear implant then the child will not gain maximum use of the implant. This information can be used to help set up an appropriate environment for a child with a cochlear implant. If a school has a child, who has recently been implanted, entering the school, this information could be used to help design an educational program for that child. It is important for the child with a cochlear implant to be in a educational setting that is prepared to educate him or her.
